Sharing Time

Sharing Time is a new project that aims to match an older person, who may be feeling isolated or lonely, with a volunteer who will arrange a visit or a weekly internet call. The arrangement is based on friendship and is simply a case of two people spending time together for mutual benefit. Knowing that a friend is popping round for a chat, even if it is a few days away, can make the world of difference.
